Plant Based News has been nominated for an award by leading UK vegan festival VegFest.

The VegFest Awards, which are going into their 10th year, celebrate the best of vegan businesses – from food and drink to bodycare, media and more.

Plant Based News has been nominated in the Best Vlogger category.


Speaking about the nomination, PBN Founder Klaus Mitchell and Co-founder Robbie Lockie said: “We are really excited and humbled to be included in VegFest’s list of nominees

“There are some great names in there, so it’s amazing to be among them – especially as we are so new on the scene.

“We are huge fans of VegFest, and look forward to the show in London later this year.”


According to a VegFest spokesperson: “We’re thrilled to be once again bringing back our much-loved vegan awards in their 10th year of existence. 

“These awards bring to the fore the amazing achievements of many individuals and groups in making vegan living as fun, accessible, dynamic and healthy as possible.

“Without our quality nominees, living vegan would be more difficult than it is nowadays, so let’s give all our nominees a big round of applause. 

“Best of luck to all of them in the upcoming month’s voting as we expect many of the 17 categories to be close calls.”
